Projected Future of Current Economic Sectors
47
How Will Economic Transitions Affect Workers?
  • OLD- CYCLIC
  • Economic downturn
  • Layoff employees
  • Economic upturn
  • Rehire employees
  • Workers return to old jobs
  • NEW- TRANSITIONAL
  • Employer closes or changes
  • New employee skills needed recruited
  • Old employees must switch careers and employer

48
How Will Organizations Differ?
  • Organization Structure
  • From fixed-large to organic-small
  • Types of Employees Within Organization
  • 1/3 core staff 1/3 temps 1/3 outsourced
  • Distribution of Employment Opportunities
  • 15 large companies
  • 35 medium small companies
  • 50 self-employed and temporary workers

49
How Will Job Conditions Change?
  • CURRENT
  • One job
  • Company employed
  • Perform a function
  • Specialized skills important
  • Paid in
  • FUTURE
  • Multiple jobs
  • Self-employed
  • Serve a purpose
  • Human skills (discover, create, responsible)
  • Paid in , time , other barter

50
Preparing for Change
  • Mental Desktop
  • Speed Learning
  • Goal Setting Time Management
  • Multiple Job (Task) Management
  • Self-Sufficiency Entrepreneurship
  • Financial Planning Management
  • Life Long Learning

51
Advice from the Fifth Discipline
  • The only sustainable competitive
  • advantage is the ability to learn faster
  • than your competition.
